Where did the name ‘RubberOnion’ come from? Cat animation sells cars? Lynda.com sold for HOW MUCH?! We have a special 2hr episode of the podcast this week because there were so many relevant stories! A new segment debuts at the end as well where I answer some questions like what’s the benefit of an LLC and how to spot a bad college. And who knows, you might be in our OTHER new segment this week: shoutouts!
